Hardback. Cover title : "Nathan F. Hart An Innocent Man in a Felon's Cell". 'The True Story of the Hart-Meservey Murder Trial, in which light is thrown upon dark deeds, incompetency, and perfidy; and crime fastened upon those whose position, if not manhood, should have been commanded honest dealing.' Mrs. Sarah Meservey was last seen alive in Tenants Harbor, Maine, on December 22, 1877. It was 5 weeks before anyone noticed she was missing, and then her strangled body was found. Nathan F. Hart, a neighbour, was convicted of her murder, mainly because he talked too much before the body was found, of how he dreamed she was strangled. Only a small portion of the book is devoted to the trial, the remainder being the author's theory. Illus. with 2 Portraits/tissue-guard, Appendix and Index + Testimonials. 309pp. 12mo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly foxed, browned edges. Vg.
